Arsenal, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Bayern Munich target Timo Werner ready to leave RB Leipzig in the summer.

The 21-year-old has shot to prominence over the last 18 months with his move from struggling VfB Stuttgart in the summer of 2016 to Red Bull Arena and sees him end a call to Germany national team.

Werner set the world alight in FIFA Confederation Cup in Russia last summer, where he won the Golden Boot winner with three goals and two assists as the World Champions crown the champions of the tournament.

Germany international has now left the door open for a high-profile switch to be made which has alert Premier League duo of Gunners and Cityzens with La Liga giants of Barcelona and Real Madrid as while as Bundesliga holders Bavarians.

Werner told Sport 1 on the mounting interest being shown in from leading sides across Europe: "If you take Germany, it would be a lie to say that you would not like to play for Bayern.

"It would be a lie to say in England you'd not like to play for Manchester United or Manchester City.

"Spain - Barca or Real. There are great clubs in every league. Italy or France would not be my leagues, but the other three.

"There are so many clubs you'd like to play for. I don't want to tie myself down. I'll see what happens."

Werner has netted 37 times in just 61 appearances for Leipzig and his current contract run until 2020.
